Courtney Barnett has by no means been idle since the release of her album Sometimes I Sit And Think, And Sometimes I Just Sit in 2015, touring heavily in support of it, then releasing the Kurt Vile collaboration Lotta Sea Lice last year and touring that. But, somewhere in the midst of it, she has found the time to write and record a new album called Tell Me How You Really Feel, which she teased on Twitter earlier this week. The 10-track release will come out through Marathon Artists on May 18th.

By way of introduction to her new album, Courtney has put out the song 'Nameless, Faceless'. It's a straightforward jangly rock number, into which Barnett projects her trademark tightly coiled lyrics, teetering between comedic and confrontational. It's a song that could go down as humorous with lines like "don't you have anything better to do?/ I wish that someone could hug you," or the more flaming put down "I could eat a bowl of alphabet soup and spit out better words than you." However, the song has more of an edge than that when it comes to the revved-up chorus, which adapts a Margaret Atwood quote into "Men are scared that women will laugh at them/ I want to walk through the park in the dark/ Women are scared that men will kill them/ I hold my keys between my fingers."

Something of a feminist anthem, 'Nameless, Faceless' is adding more fuel to the fire of excitement that burns for Tell Me How You Really Feel. Listen below.

Tell Me How You Really Feel can be pre-ordered here ahead of its May 18th release.
